Bacardi Reserva Ocho 8 Year Old Rum (700ml)
This aged rum, we are told, was historically reserved for Don Facundo & the Bacardi family. It is a blend of Bacardi’s finest Caribbean rums, is aged at least eight years in carefully selected, small, mature oak casks , then masterfully blended to develop the rounded complexity of that only the finest aged rums attain to. Mixing Bacardi 8 year old is strictly taboo.
Tasting Notes: Rich copper color. Sweet toffee, roasted nuts, and brown spice aromas are very sophisticated and deep. A vibrant entry leads to a supple, glycerous and lightly sweet full-bodied palate of chocolate, warm caramel, toasted nuts, and rich spices with a touch of cigar box and lacquer for complexity. Finishes with a long, smoky caramel and spice fade. Fantastic and a must for cigars.
